Woods, Faldo shake hands

HOYLAKE (England): For those hoping to see a heavyweight fight on the first tee at the British Open, they'll have to settle for golf.

The tabloids have been buzzing all week about Tiger Woods and Nick Faldo playing together the first two rounds, fuelled by Woods' comments on Tuesday that he would be surprised if Faldo wanted to talk.

But there was talk and a handshake on Wednesday afternoon on the practice range.

According to photographers who were across the street on the range, Faldo and Woods chatted briefly, then shook hands. Faldo later circled behind him and spoke with swing coach Hank Haney as Woods continued to hit balls.

The frosty relationship stems from Faldo making critical comments of a bad swing by Woods at the 2005 Buick Invitational, which eventually made their way back to the Woods's camp. — AP
